Licensed Master Social Worker
Clinical Social Worker

"I view therapy as a collaborative process in which individuals have an opportunity to establish goals and develop realistic ways to achieve their goals. As a therapist, I strive to create a comfortable atmosphere where individuals feel safe to explore their concerns and encouraged to build upon their strengths. I feel honored in the role of helping individuals work through difficult times and adjust to life's transitions as well as improve their life satisfaction and relationships with others. In addition to therapy, I provide comprehensive evaluations to determine potential diagnoses of autism spectrum disorders for ages 2 to adult.”
